Winter is too long to not ride.
We slave over unimportant choices everyday—this movie or that; a glass of wine or not; should I wear jeans to work on casual Friday? Yet, we tend to ignore the burning decisions that actually impact our lives; say, winter cycling apparel. Unless you enjoy spending all of spring getting into the shape you were in 7 months ago, pick up the Pearl Izumi Select Thermal Cycling Tight. These cycling tights are made from a proprietary material that not only warms and wicks, but, most importantly, fit and feel like normal cycling tights. The cold months are a big chunk of the year, and it's worth gathering a winter-specific wardrobe.
Pearl Izumi's Select Thermal Cycling Tight features an
anatomical, multi-panel design made from the exclusive Select Thermal
Fleece fabric. This material was carefully selected to ensure a
hand-in-hand system of consistent warming insulation and effective
moisture transfer. The selection grants a protective garment, for mild
to moderately cold weather, that won't have you drowning in sweat when your
watts start to climb. The eight-inch zipper makes
for an easy in-and-out of the tight, and to extend further comfort to your ride, Pearl added the anatomically designed Tour 3D Chamois. The chamois uses a variable density padding that's been pre-shaped to enhance blood flow. Additionally, its breathable four-way stretch material creates an abrasion-free surface that conforms to the body and moves moisture away.
Pearl Izumi understands
that while a winter garment had better be warm, a tight isn't worth its
weight if the fit isn't precise and comfortable.To ensure this, they designed the Select's multiple panels in a pattern that allows full
articulation during common cycling movements, with the panels attaching
with flatlock, double needle seams for a durable, non-abrasive
structure. To keep everything in place, the Select Thermal Cycling Tight makes
use of plush elastic ankle gripper. This not only helps the tight retain
its contoured fit, but it also ensures that the insulation layer
remains uninterrupted. For riding under the street lights, Pearl also
added 360 degree reflective accents to the tight.
The Pearl Izumi Thermal Cycling Tight is available in sizes from Small to XX-Large, and in the color Black.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I thought twice about buying these but the extra cost is worth it. I'm 5'11" and quite slim, 28" waist, but the Small's fit perfectly. The quality is great. I'm beginning to love Pearl.
